New workshop for 50+ entrepreneurs

ever-dreamed-of-being-your-own-boss-5Are you over 50 and looking for ways to improve your current financial situation? Have you ever dreamed of being your own boss? Work for Yourself@50+ SM has the information you need to succeed.

Pathway Women’s Business Center is pleased to announce we are hosting three Work for Yourself@50+ SM workshops starting in November of 2016.

Work for Yourself@50+ is a new initiative launched by AARP Foundation, with support from The Hartford. The program helps low- and moderate-income older adults explore opportunities to work for themselves and take the right steps toward successful self-employment. This workshop looks at self-employment paths in contracting, freelancing, microbusiness and social enterprise, and helps people identify their own marketable traits, talents and skills. It also offers useful financial advice — regardless of participants’ specific financial situation.

The decision to start your own business can be both exciting and daunting. Work for Yourself@50+ breaks the choices down for older adults in an approachable way through five steps:

  • A careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks of working for yourself
  • Exercises to help develop the self-employment idea
  • A realistic overview of what it takes to pursue a self-employment opportunity
  • Guidance to help avoid pitfalls and scams
  • Ways to find trustworthy support and services
